Joe Defeated Crimson

Famous quotes containing the words joe, defeated and/or crimson:

    Stoop, angels, hither from the skies!
    There is no holier spot of ground
    Than where defeated valor lies,
    By mourning beauty crowned!
    Henry Timrod (1828–1867)

    As the saffron tints and crimson flushes of morn herald the coming day, so the social and political advancement which woman has already gained bears the promise of the rising of the full-orbed sun of emancipation. The result will be not to make home less happy, but society more holy.
